BENEFITING: OKLAHOMA CITY NATIONAL MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
EVENT: Oklahoma City Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 27, 2014
Charley and I will be running the OKC Memorial Half Marathon for a 2nd year. Our goal this time is not only to finish, but to beat our 2013 times. This year we set up a fundraising page to support the mission of the race. Funding for the Museum IS NOT received from any governmental funds. It is all, 100% donations.
Please show your support and give.
We all remember where we were on April 19, 1995 (if you were born). Cody was 2. The federal building that was bombed that day no longer exists and has been replaced. The reason I run, is for those who lost their lives that day. Those whose lives were forever changed that day. And, how deeply I was touched the day we walked Cody into the new federal building for his deployment to MCRD - San Diego.
Knowing that April 19,1995, it was possible, that other parents were in the building doing the same thing that I was doing almost 17 years later was heart breaking for me. I couldn't imagine the trauma and turmoil.
It is a wonderful running event and an outstanding memorial. I would encourage everyone to participate in any form that they can: runner, walker, 5K, half, team or full marathon, spectator, or volunteer. And by all means, please donate, any amount will help.
Charley and I appreciate your time and the Memorial appreciates your money.
